This workshop focuses on the use of oil pastels combined with painting mediums such as acrylic and watercolor, and how they interact with various substrates and GOLDEN textures and paints.

Enjoy playing with the luscious texture and versatility of oil pastel. In this 2-day workshop, we will experiment with grounds and a variety of surfaces to change the way oil pastels behave, and use tools for different effects. We will look into how oil pastel works with media such as watercolor, colored pencils and acrylic paint, and explore responding to arbitrary marks to create imagery that evolves intuitively rather than intentionally. This class is about experimenting and having fun, and is suitable for both beginners and those more experienced.

Please bring some of your own ideas for subject matter; other ideas will also be supplied.
